This figurine features 2 quotations. The first is George Bernard Shaw's "People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them". The second quote is "The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do" by Walter Bagehot.
